Food preparation, in shape, living to work, working to live -- we do it. When do we not "do it"? That is where prayer, meditation, rest fill the gaps. There is a certain fear in being still. What is being left undone? The same feeling that you get when you are doing activity as exercise, and you feel compelled to be listening to music for distraction, or to talk with someone as you workout. It's that feeling which sometimes masks an overall fear of doing this something "alone". Once you are a confirmed person who exercises, you don't notice that alone - ness: you just move, and do your thing.
Our bodies, souls and minds crave the moments of stillness and the time to rest.
Sleep tight, take time to reflect -- the other important activities of your life will still be there -- choose wisdom, choose rest.
